Poe Zest contains the work of legend Edgar Allan Poe and has been reimagined by Mike Bennett who has written for Rik Mayall, Frankie Howard, Phil Cool, The Muppets, and many more.
With music by Guy Cavill, this exciting Poe-inspired tale, tracks the story of Robert Jones, whose nose brings him both success and despair! During his journey we meet characters such as The Raven, whose refrain
reverberates throughout the narrative. Meanwhile his Tell-tale Heart accentuates his ever-enveloping fear of premature burial or even hanging from the gallows courtesy of The Black Cat!
Written in verse and prose, this body of work captures the spirit of Poe whilst retaining an originality that is as comedic as it is macabre, replete with murder, mystery and Machiavellian intrigue.
The atmospheric score and Steve Bowden’s art and cinematic imagery captures the mood of the creepy tale that has more twists and turns than Brands Hatch.
Written by Mike Bennett, music by Guy Cavill, Art and Film by Steve Bowden and Roy Medhurst
